My twistouts need to be on point because I plan on rocking a curly partial sew-in soon. How do you get the perfectly formed ringlets every single time?

I'm mostly 4a, so my hair is extremely coily and won't take to twists very easily in it's natural state. The ONLY way I can do a twistout is to first stretch (or blowout) my hair, add in leave-in + shea moisture CES, and then twist (medium/pencil sized).

I see. I'm 4a/4b and I don't have to blow out my hair but it doesn't come out right every time and the ends remain fuzzy. I got me some virgin Brazilian tight curl and I want a partial weave to preserve my edges so it needs to blend  right. I'm putting weave in only half my head, in the back.
 
If anyone can chime in as to products/twist patterns being used, I'd appreciate it.

Make sure my hair is sopping wet, then take a section of hair I am going to twist out I will apply a generous amount of Roots of Nature Coil Creme or Butter and proceed to twist.  When my hair is dry I take it down and those twist last me about three days.

I have to try this product and see how it compares to the ORS lock and twist gel. I notice my hair needs to be damp but not soaking wet. If it's too wet, I get more shrinkage. Do you do individual or flat twists?

Individual.  I usually put the twist in a ponytail to stretch it out.  But I must stress that this is what works for me.

This lol. It's great in the winter when there is no humidity.

I slightly dampen the twist section with water from a spray bottle,
I'll add in a leave in conditioner(giovanni direct) or regular conditioner(Herbal Essence totally twisted)
I add a butter(butter plus oil mix)
Detangle if needed
Then twist in about 20 twists. Pin the ends if they try to unravel
Slap a satin cap on and that's it until morning. When you undo them, be gentle!

Make sure when you run out of hair at the end of the 2 twists you don't 'borrow' hair from the other twist. It'll just make your ends frizzy. Add product to each individual section you are about to twist to get equal distribution of product.

My twistouts work best on previously stretched/dried hair. My post-wash twistouts get messy quicker.

Wash/condition hair in sections. Detangle during conditioning. Apply leave-ins and oils to each section and make 2 braids/twists to dry. Wear the next day in a pinned up style (or wrap).

(Day 2 after wash day or after style that allowed hair to stretch)

Mist hair gently with water based leave in. (I like the shea moisture spritz).
Carefully and gently finger detangle, then sparingly use modified denman or tangle teaser to get last few tangles out. Apply butter/custard/flax seed gel. Grasp the two strands tightly near the root, and begin twisting. (For even longer lasting twistouts, braid for about an inch at the root) Only begin to move hands down the twist when you can't twist any more. At end of twist curl the ends around your finger to get a coil.

Wrap thinner scarf around the front to keep edges laid, and then put on a silk bonnet.

At the end of the day, moisturize ends and loosly pin up OR retwist in large sections.

This will usually get me about a week.
